    Dropped by my bank today to check for general "different" coins and currency. They had six thousand in $100 bills. I did a real quick check of dates, grades, star notes, etc...

    Picked up the only Star note...1963A in pretty good condition that I will probably drop on E-bay.

    The 1950's were all in pretty good shape, but a lot of the 1960's were fantastic

    They are holding the rest for me to research and buy what I want later in the week. Is there anything in particular I should look for?

    OR

    Are there any requests from you note/bill collectors out there??

    1950 Series E will have a nice premium in higher grades

    Especially stars, I bought one at the bank back in 2008 - a $50 and sold it for nearly $400.

    None of the 1950's were all that great......I'd say about average. Is the Series E still worth picking up?

    Also, any of the 60's worth taking a shot at?

    If it were me I would buy them all, save/sell the good ones, and have fun spending the old ones. I love spending old notes and seeing the looks.

    Even in EF condition you should be able to get a premium for the E series.

    Did they have a story on how they got it? Who deposited it? Eg. Little old lady? What circumstances?

    It was an old man, usc. Teller said he had all of it in a safe in his home.
    Not sure of circumstances or exactly why he was bringing them in at that time.
